So apparently “taking a bite out of crime” means something different in Louisiana.
At least it did to one gator.
A Caddo Parish deputy spotted an alligator in the middle of Hwy1 Monday night and tried to wrangle the 8-foot beast out of the roadway while waiting for wildlife officials to come and remove it.
But the gator was not having it.
The crotchety critter got a bit snappish and did what gators do – it chomped down on the patrol car and proceeded to take a bite out of crime … stoppers. Or at least the crimestoppers’ vehicle.
Thankfully, no one was injured in the altercation.
And the toothy perp made a clean getaway.
